Rue des Chanoines runs off Rue Saint Romain and is the most amazing little narrow lane running under (or through) the timbered houses. Rue Saint Romain itself is a charming cobblestoned street lined with a variety of interesting shops and leading right up to the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen. Rue de la Croix de Fer also runs off Rue Saint... More

this part of Normandy has some spectacular villages with exceptional timbered buildings. Rouen probably some of the best. Best toured on a Sunday early, so you can enjoy the the sights with out the crowds

I went to Rouen recently with my son and we visited the Historial de Jeanne D'Arc on Rue Saint Romain. This is a new attraction having only be open for a week or so and is well worth a visit. As with many of of the best museums in France it brings history to life in a very creative way,... More

Three of us rented a small apartment on this street. Our building was 300-400 years old, half timbered and plaster. Many small shops on the street. It was one block from Notre Dame Cathredal and just a little farther to City Center. We were within walking distance of everything we needed; markets, restaurants, shops, museums, etc. Just to the North... More

The buildings surrounding this square is beautiful and made me think I was in Germany instead of France. There's lots to see, including the spot nearby where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.

A walk down this street will take you back to another time and place! There are structures/houses that have been standing for centuries; some look like they are leaning precariously. The walkways are narrow and uneven, and paved with cobblestones. Very charming!

For a little side street, Rue Saint-Roman is packed with interesting businesses. OK, the location is ideal - just on the north side of the cathedral. We did some shopping there - found some lovely glassware and great chocolate. And we didn't get a chance to eat at the creperie on the street, but it looked nice. And of course... More

The Rue Saint-Romain is a narrow pedestrian street leading eastwards from the northern side of the Notre Dame Cathedral Square. Its main feature is the variety of coloured half-timbered Gothic and Renaissance buildings, mostly sitting above shops and boutiques. The old buildings date variously from between the 15C and the 18C and, in my opinion, are worth a short visit... More
